Severn Trent begins £360,000 project in Melton Mowbray

Monday 28th October 2019

Severn Trent is to begin work on a £360,000 project this week, that will bring improvements to the water supply in Melton Mowbray.

The company is upgrading its water pipes, so customers can have a reliable water supply for years to come.

Lisa Orme from Severn Trent said: “This is a really important project for those living in and around the area, as it means the network will be at its best condition and less likely to burst and cause problems for our customers.“We’ll be starting on Cornwall Place this week, and then making our way round to Goldspink Close, Queens Way then right round to Princess Drive where we’ll finish.”

Severn Trent working partners nmcn will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company, and they expect to be completed on Princess Drive by April 2020.

When finished, Severn Trent will have renewed just under 2.5 kilometres of water pipes in the area.

“With this type of work, we know that there will be some disruption which we’re really sorry about,” adds Lisa. “We will be using some traffic management so our teams can work safely in the road, while keeping the public safe.

“Again we’re sorry if this is an inconvenience, but we really hope that everyone understands just how important this project is, as when we’re finished it means our customers can have a water supply they can trust, which means the water is always there when they need it.”
